Event description

Description

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is now at full capacity. Please use the register button to place yourself on the waitlist. We will be scheduling additional workshops for childcare services in the Hawkesbury-Nepean floodplain.

We will contact you as soon as we have new dates and provide you with details on how to register.

Red Cross invites children’s services in the Hawkesbury-Nepean area to attend a workshop on planning for emergencies.

Young children are particularly vulnerable during disasters. This workshop will provide you with information and tips to better prepare your organisation for emergencies. This workshop will provide you with the latest information on your natural hazard risks such as floods and bushfires to improve your awareness of your local risks.

This is a unique opportunity to draw upon the expertise of emergency services and further develop your emergency management plan with agencies such as the NSW SES, Rural Fire Service, Fire and Rescue, Police.

The workshop will address questions such as:

What is the role of emergency services during an event?

How can our service better prepare our premises?

How can we prepare for events which happen very quickly?

How are we responsible to staff, parents and children during an event?

How can we communicate our plan to staff, parents and children?

Are there issues specific to our service type or location in the Hawkesbury-Nepean valley we should consider, such as floods and bushfire?

Who should attend: We suggest service managers, family day care coordinators and/or directors attend. We strongly encourage you to bring a member of your parent management committee if possible.

Staff backfill is available upon request.

Lunch and light refreshments provided.

Places are limited – please register early.
